Creative Director

“Creative Director.” It sounds good, doesn’t it? (Probably because it has the words “creative” and “director” in it.) But what does it mean?

For Ueno, a Creative Director means more or less this:

  • You’re a very good designer. (But you’re not an asshole about it.)

  • Your currency is ideas. Without them we’re just making wallpaper.

  • You’re a beloved leader of designers and interns. You attract fantastic people and inspire them to do the best work of their careers.

  • You love working with clients, and clients love you right back.

  • You can take what is sometimes only an imperceptible hint of an idea, and with your team nudge and wrench it into beautiful existence.

  • You’ve got a grasp on the technology your designs are built on, and you work well with the developers and producers who make it happen.

  • You’ve spent at least seven happy years at an agency, a startup, a pirate ship, or a similar organization.

  • You know all about design and the tools to make design, but you get that design is really about people.

  • You understand our company culture and values, and you help us maintain them. But you’re also not afraid to let our CEO know when he’s being an idiot.

  • You help your colleagues grow and become better versions of themselves.

  • You’re a punk who always shows up on time.
